have lost more jobs to china, so you have oregon and texas and look at california over here. 3% of their jobs in the past dozen years lost to china. the candidates say this is largely happening because while america allows its value of the dollar to be set by the free market, and that determines the cost of labor, that china manipulates the cost of its currency so it can control the cost of labor because they have a lot of people they need to employ. they would like to keep labor costs low to attract a lot of business. now, it is difficult to do a 1:1 comparison because productivity is very different between the u.s. and china. let's look this way as much as we can. if you had a u.s. factory and you wanted to produce something there, by the time you paid a laborer all the benefits, all the salary, and everything else, that's going to come out to about $34 an hour. to do the same thing in china it is going to be more like $2 an hour. so the chinese government has structured its infrastructure and everything else to support this idea, to bring factories in, to take advantage of that
